„ V NATIONAL MUSEUM. 



Site. In connexion with rhc foundation of 

the Museum it is a fact worth notice, that the 
ground on which i[ is built was presented by 
the Citj- of Amsterdam to the St^ite. It occupies 
an area of three hectares of which i i.ooo square 
metres are built over. 

The open space is laid out in gardens in the 
Dutch style of the Kith, i/iii and i8ih centuries, 
where cUpped hedges of beech and box are 
variegated by bowers and a maze, while the 
remainder of the grounds is everv here and 
there adorned with the remains of Dutch monu- 
ments of architecmre, of late vears taken down 
in various towns, and erected again hem- Svi.'iv 



Building: northiide. External ornameutalisn. 

are the old Bergpoort (Mountgate) of Deventer, from the year 1613, 
and the Heerenpoort (Lord's gate) of Groningen, from 1611, here 
built back to back against each other; while near the Deventer gale 
are placed some old pieces of ordnance obtained in 18B8. Mutually 
connected and forming together an elongated quadrangle, we find 
against the western backwall the old fine archway of the Gymna- 
sium (Grammar School) of Leiden, the portico of the Huygens-house 
at the Hague, built by Jacob Van Campen, the gate of the old 
Admiralty of Rotterdam, a wall of the Valkenhofat Breda, and some 
columns and arches of the demolished Little Church at Edam, etc. 
Finally some groups of statues from the 18th century and an old 
bronze Chinese pagoda give a peculiarly quaint character to this park, 
shortly to be completed. 

This surrounding park gives the building the advantage of com- 
plete isolation, by which circumsrance light is obtained freely, and 
the comparative safety of the building from fire is promoted. A 
tunnel, on the southside, connects the eastern apd the western por- 
tion of the park, separated from the high road bv a wrought iron 
railing. 



The walls of the building consist of brickwork (of 
such a dimension as was not usual in Holland in subsequent times) 
variegated by free stone. As to the st>-le, the architect has striven 
strictly to deduce all the forms from and to bring them into har- 
mony with the construction, while the ornamentation is of a piece 
with that of the Dutch „Renaissance"' of the ii5"l' century. Under 
the building there is an archway 71 Metres long. The facade has a 
width of 135 Metres. The height of the two principal towers at the 
facade is 62 Metres, that of the corner- turrets 43 Metres, 

Exteraal oma- '-*" either side of the two main entrances are placed 
mentation. the figures representing Architecture, Sculpture, Painting 
(Northside). ^jjj Engraving: the two former at the cast wing of the 
building, in which are exhibited the Dutch architecture and sculpture 
in stone, wood, metal and other materials, from the earliest times till 
the 19th century; the two latter at the west wing, where the cabinet 
of engravings is placed.

Building: mrthside. Extet-nal nrnamentatim. 

Over the archway, at the spot where the grand hall is situated, 
there is for outside ornament a relief representing the Virgin of Hol- 
land on a throne, paying homage to the Dutch artists. At her feet 
there are two figures, as emblems of Beauty and Truth, in the shape 
of virgins. Beauty appears to the left, holding in her left hand her 
emblem, the lily branch, and in her right a pair of compasses rest- 
ing on a globe, the emblem of perfection; her eyes are fixed on the 
Virgin of Holland, while the lower part of the body is draped. To 
the right Truth is seated, having an open bible in her right and a 
mirror in her left hand. (See Pict. i.) 

Next to the throne there are two emblematic figures: fViidom 
and Justice; the former like Minerva with cask, lance and shield, 
the latter with sword and scales; both as guardians and advisers 
for the homage offered by Holland to the artists, whose works 
should escel by Beauty and Truth. On either side some artists 
are advancing to receive the coronets awarded ihem by the Virgin 
of Holland. 

To the right are three architects, as the representatives of the 
Carolingian, the Romane and the mediaeval periods: Eginhart, Char- 
lemagne's architect in front, John ten Doem, the builder of the 
Cathedral church at Utrecht, and KeJderraans who built the town- 
hall at Middelburg and the church at Zieriksee, 

To the left appear: the sculptor Klaas Sluter, the painters Dirk 
Stuerbout and Lucas Van Leyden. 

in the next division comes to the right: Rembrandt, the king of 
light in front, and grouped around him Adriaen van Ostade, Gerard 
Dou, Jan Steen and Paulus Potter. 

In the division to the left iollow first Ridder (knight) Adriaan 
Van der Werff, Jan Van Huysum, Jacob De Wit, Rachel Ruysch, 
the flower painter, and the renowned engraver Jacobus Houbraken. 

On either side of these groups are placed representations with 
emblematic figures of the different fine arts. 

To the right the art of drawing and painting is represented: in 
the middle of the background is the model, a beautiful woman and 
a child; on the fore-ground two figures seated; the painter a man 
in his prime, oe?;ring the stamp of the earnestness of life, opposite to 
him a youuj; woman, while both are studying and delineating the

model. In the corner to the right there are two standing figures: the 
youth holds the drawing pencil, whilst the other with his hand on 
the boy's shoulder seems to be his adviser. On the left, a little more 
to the front, two youthful drawers are busily engaged, whilst on the 
fore-ground the figure of a stalwart man kneeling unrolls a drawing 
and seems to study the contents of it. 

On the left: architecture and sculpture in operation. The architect 
„Magister operum" is conspicuous by his attitude and gesture: he is 
dressed in the classical gown and mantle and gives his orders to 
one of the male figures, apparently the foreman; next to the archi- 
tect a stonecutter, engaged in tracing his stone with level and com- 
passes; more to the centre a vigorous man carrying a beam to the 
monument building, a wall of which is represented in the back- 
ground. On the foreground a sculptor engaged in chiseling a female 
figure; while a youthful ornamentist comes carrying a stone with 
festoon-work. 

These three reliefs, of which the middle one has a width of 7 M. 
and the two others of 3.50 M. each, are separated by buttresses, sup- 
porting the figures of Art and Histor'^. 

Art is represented as a woman holding in her right hand a 
drawing pencil, brush and chisel, whilst her left rests on a trunk 
from which shoots a scion, to show that art should always grow 
and flourish. 

History^ as a woman crowned with laurels, the roll of history and 
a pencil in her hand. 

The gable is crowned by the figure of Victory^ a woman with 
the Dutch crown and spread wings, distributing wreaths. 

At the base of this triangular gable are placed two figures in a 
sitting posture. They represent Inspiration and Labour^ both requisite 
to produce in art a work at least to be deemed worthy ot the crown 
of victory. The figure placed on the east side represents Inspiration 
in the guise of a youth looking to Heaven. In one Hand he has an 
open book (the Bible), whilst in the other he keeps his pencil, ready 
to draw the inspiration received. By his side is an eagle, with the 
ancient as well as the mediaeval poets and artists the emblem of 
inspiration, since he flies highest and his keen eyes are able to face 
the sun. 

— 5 — 



On the westside Labour is represented as a man more advanced in 
years bending over his table. In it he traces with a style the outlines 
of his study. An ox, the emblem of labour, is placed by his side. 

The two large reliefs, adorning this wall somewhat lower, represent 
emblematically the foundation of the Museum, bearing the date of 
the royal appointment, July 12, 1876, and on the westside the date 
of the opening, July [3, 1885. 

In consequence of the authorisation given by the Secretary ot State 
tor Foreign affairs of ly June 1880, artists of every nation were invi- 
ted to enter into a competition for the execution of the works of 
sculpture to the Museum. This call was attended to by 8 Dutch and 
6 foreign artists, with the result that Mr. F. Vermeylen at Louvain 
was commissioned to execute the figure of Victory, the large reliefs, 
the ornaments over the doors and six figures, and Mr. Bart Van 
Hove, of Amsterdam, to furnish the figures representing Impiration 
and Labour^ as also all the busts over the windows. 

In the main building and at the same height in both towers 
have been placed 26 figures in ornamental tiles, representing the 
different towns renowned for the culture of art and art-industry. 

These figures support the escutcheons or banners of the towns they 
represent. Group in the centre wall: the Dutch towns, as: Amsterdam, 
Haarlem, Leiden, the Hague, Delfr, Dort, Rotterdam and Gouda. 

Group on the right tower east of the archway : the towns of the 
'Sticht* and "Oversticht", as : Utrecht, Deventer, ZwoUe, Kampen and 
Groningen, 

Group on the left tower, west of the archway : the towns ot the 
former dukedom of Guelders and the county of Zutphen, as: Maes- 
tricht, Nijmegen, Zutphen, Roermond, Arnhem, 

Group on the eastside; the towns of Brabant and Friesland, as: 
Breda, Bois-le-Duc, Bolsward and Leeuwarden, 

Group on the westside: the towns of West-Friesland and Zeeland, 
as: Hoorn, Alkmaar, Middelburg and Zieriksee. 

External or- ^^ ^^e south front, at the same height of the build- 
nomentation. ing, have been placed two effigies and nine figures 
(Southaide.) in ornamental tiles, representing persons who have 
more especially influenced fine art.

behalf of the Museum at Amsterdam, thus laying the foundation 
of Ihe Dutch State Museum. 

King IVilUam I, who founded the celebrated Royal Collection of 
Pictures „Mauritshuis" at the Hague, laid the foundation of the collec- 
tion of works of art by modern masters at the „Pavi!joen" al Haar-

In the large spaces not yet finished at the height of the first floor, 
where the pictures are kept, the following representations in orna- 
mental tiles will be placed on the front. The centre space against the

director. 

Origin of the The collection took its origin in virtue of a decree 
collection of of king Louis Napoleon of April 21, 1808, by which 
pictures. the erection was ordered of a Royal Museum at Am- 

sterdam. It was formed of the remnant of the pictures and curiosities 
left by the last Stadtholder, William V. The Prince's art- col lection 
proper had, after his departure on January 18, 1795, been carried to 
Paris by the French. To the remaining works of art were added 
some pieces taken from public buildings, and some others which since 
1798 had been collected in the Palace in the Wood near the Hague; 
subsequently this collection had, in 1 805, again been removed to the 
ancient cabinet of the Stadtholder, where it obtained the name ot 
„Nalional Museum" The nucleus of this Museum, consisting of 96 
pictures and 38 „ curiosities," was conveyed in December 1808 to the 
new Royal Museum at Amsterdam. To this were added 57 pictures, 
bought for about 100,000 guilders on June 6, i8ofi, at the auction 
of the collection Van der Pot van Groenevelt at Rotterdam and 
eight pictures, of the Old School, sent in 1808 from the Hague,

as also 7 pictures, of the Old School too, given by the city of 
Amsterdam. Further some pictures were received as presents, among 
which the fine portrait of the Lieutenant-Admiral-General M. A. 
De Ruyter. 

At last, in 1 809, the collection Van Heteren, consisting of 1 37 pictures, 
was bought for 100,000 guilders. Besides, also in 1809, 7 pictures, from 
the collection of Mrs. Bicker were obtained by purchase. Finally a 
number of casts from the Musee Napoleon at Paris and some anti- 
quities from the province of Drenthe were incorporated into the 
Museum. 

The whole collection was placed in some of the upper rooms in 
the Royal palace on the Dam, whither also the Museum of Natural 
History from Harlem was conveyed, after which it was opened to 
the public. 

In 1 8 10 the collection was extended by the addition of the numis- 
matic cabinet h*om the Hague. Further it was resolved to give the 
Museum the name of Dutch Museum. In the same year this country 
was incorporated into France, and the city of Amsterdam, as pro- 
prietor of the most important pictures, was forced to bear the expenses 
of the Museum, since else it would have gone the way of all collec- 
tions of art. It was resolved, September 3, 1814, to remove the col- 
lection of pictures, etc. as also the Museum of Natural History, to 
the 'Trippenhuis'. 

In 18 15 it was opened to the public. Of the plaster casts some 
few were presented to the Municipal Academy for drawing and the 
others to the University of Leiden. 

The numismatic collection went back to the Hague in 18 16, whilst 
on the other hand the collection of engravings at the Hague was 
ceded to the Museum at Amsterdam. 

The antiquities, curiosities and sculpture were in 1825 transferred 
partly to Leiden, partly to the Hague, and the Museum of Natural 
History to the former town. In the same year some pieces were 
exchanged for others from the Royal collection of pictures at the 
Hague. 

From 18 14 till 1830 was a time of thriving for the collection. 
From 1830, the year when the secession of Belgium took place, a 
time of stagnation followed, with regard to purchases, and it ter-

H. Van de Poll (1880), as also several other presents, among which 
that of Jhr. J. S. R. Van de Poll (1885) deserves separately to be 
mentioned 

Since 1838 the modern pictures had been separated from the col- 
lection and added to the Museum of Modern art in the Pavilion 
„Welgelegen" at Harlem. A second transfer of modern art followed 
thither in 1848, again to form part of the Museum at Amsterdam 
37 years later. 

In the last eight years the collection has been greatly enriched by 
presents and purchase, and that not least in 1885, when it obtained 
its greatest extension by the addition of pieces, representing Civic 
guards and Governors, belonging to the city of Amsterdam, and 
also by some other pictures, which hitherto were hidden in the 
Townhall, former Workhouse and elsewhere, altogether forming a 
number of 165 pictures. 

Indeed, the old Museum 'Trippenhuis' boasted of some of these 
pieces, as Rembrandt's „Nachtwacht" (Nightwatch), and 'Staalmees- 
'ters' (Syndics), Van der Helsfs 'Schuttersmaaltijd en de overlieden 
van St. Sebastianus Doelcn' (Banquet of Municipal guards and Mas- 
ters of St. Sebastian's Shooting company), G. Flinck's Festival of 
Municipal Guards, Du Jardin's Governors of the Workhouse, and 
also Willem Van de Velde's View of the Y; but these pieces had 
never been done justice to by the light in which they were seen 
there. 

Since 1885 the public Collection of Works of art by modern mas- 
ters, formerly on view in the Pavilion 'Welgelegen' at Harlem, has 
been incorporated into the Museum. This collection, including some 
modern pieces already there, counts nearly 200 pictures. 

The modern masters are well represented, as well in this collec- 
tion as by the pictures ceded as loans in 1885 and belonging to the 
^Society for the formation of a public Collection of Contemporary art." 

The aggregate of the collection of pictures, as well old as modem 
art, by far exceeds 1900 pieces, among which upwards of 500 as loans.

the Physon, Gihon, Tigris and Euphrates, and finally, in the four 
corners, the Sun, Moon and the planets Jupiter and Venus, sur-

The space to the left side contains in the centre: Time, round 
which are Morning, Noon, Evening and Night, and in the corners 
the four periods of life : Childhood, Youth, Manhood and Old Age» 

The space to the right shows in the centre the four chief elements r 
Air, Earth, Water, Fire, and in the corners the four seasons: Springs

Besides, in the mosaic of the floor the following inscriptions are 
placed in commemoration of the foundation and construction of the 
Museum :

The eye is, however, especially struck by the large windows of 
stained glass which adorn the entrance hall. 
These paintings on glass are not from the hand of a Hollander; 

i) It is intended in the course of time to decorate the spaces, as yet open, with 
wall paintings, the subjects of which are taken from Dutch art-history. Between 
these spaces are the golden initials of King William III and his consort Queen 
Emma, under whose prosperous reign this grand structure has been raised in honour 
of this country's art. The walls contain moreover the figures of some animals as 
emblems the meaning of which is as follows: Strength is represented by the Lion, 
Gentleness by the Lamb, Temperance by the Camel and Prudence by the Serpent*

difTerent periods — a Greek temple from Paestum, the demolished 
Mary's church of Utrecht, the Grand Hall of William, king of the 
Roman empire, at the Hague, and the Townhall at the Hague. 

The four spaces above them contain the following representations: 
the process of Architecture in wood, stone and metal, the fourth repre- 
senting Shipbuilding. 

The arched window, left of the spectator, glorifies Painting. The 
four lowermost spaces represent four masters as the types of the an- 
cient and more recent schools: Apelles, Willem Van Heerle, Lucas 
Van Leyden and Rembrandt. Straight above these, four spaces repre- 
sent the process of the art of Fresco Painting, of illuminating ma- 
nuscripts, of the art of staining glass, and of painting on pannel or 
canvas. 

The arched window to the right relates to sculpture. As with 
painting, here four of its renowned votaries are seen, viz: Phidias, 
Sluter, Jan Terwen and Hendrik De Kevser. 

In the four spaces above these is represented the practice of 
Sculpture in marble and other stone, in wood, and the embossing 
and casting in metal of objects of art. 

In the two smaller windows, placed between the three large arched 
windows, Philosophy, Theology, Poetry and Music find their places; 
they are represented by Plato, Thomas a Kempis, Vondel and 
Sweelinck. 

The four spaces above these contain pictures of Mathematicians, 
Doctors, Poets and Singers. 

In the twelve spaces of the three large windows, directly under 
the outline of the arch, social life is represented by the following 
principal persons: in the centre window, a King, a Warrior, a Priest 
and a Doctor; in the eecond window, an Artist, a Merchant, a 
Farmer and a Fisher; in the third window a Builder, a Weaver, a 
Potter and a Mechanician. 

All the persons in these twelve compartments are represented in 
the dress of the i6tli century. 

Especial notice deserve the twelve small medallions in the four 
half circles, standing for the twelve months, represented by men 
engaged in different sorts of labour according to the time of the 
year.

In the six circles above these the portraits are placed of some 
distinguished Dutch painters on glass: Lange Pier, Jan Van Bronc- 
horst, Petrus Feddes, Bouchorst, Dirck Pietersz. Crabeth and Wouter 
Pietersz. Crabeth; the three large circles display in an emblematic 
way Faith, Hope and Love. 

Between the arches about the vaults, the intellectual world 
or mental life is represented. As point of issue: Poetry finding 
utterance in words with the poets, — in form and colour with 
the votaries of the liberal arts : architects, painters, sculptors, engravers 
and decorators — and in sounds by the composers and bell -founders. 
The arts observable by sight are placed to the left, — those obser- 
vable by hearing to the right of poetry. 

The arts are represented, in meaallions, by celebrated men from 

different centuries as: the poets by David, Homer, Dante, Shakespeare, 
Racine, Goethe. 

The architects by Eginhard, Pierre De Montereau, Keldermans. 

The painters by Memlinc, Raphael and Frans Hals. 

The sculptors by Michel Angelo, Lucca Delia Robbia and Aert

In connexion with the above, the following texts, are placed on 
the wall:

So all these pictures on glass, with portraits and adages on the 
wall form together an entire chain of thought, having the undeniable 
merit of being original, and from this very quality already possessing 
a great charm. 2) 

Before leaving the Front-hall it is worth while to pay attention 
to four nicely painted representations of the chase of the Flemish 
painter of animals, David De Coninck (1636—17..) adorning the 
south wall-, and further to the graceful group „Prima Vera" — the 
Awakening of Spring — projected by Bart Van Hove.

in marble of Pope Leo XII by Louis Rover (1793— 1868), also one 
of Joanna Cornelia Ziesenis, nee Wattier, celebrated actress (born at 
Rotterdam 13 March 1762, died at Voorburg 23 April 1827) by P. 
J. Gabriel (1785—1853); a similar bust of Cornelis Apostool, from 
1808 till 1844 Director of the Picture gallery, also by P. J. Gabriel. 

Further a bust in terra cotta of Anna of Brunswick— Luneburg, 
Crown-princess of Great-Britain, consort to the stadtholder Willem 
IV, Prince of Orange, made by Michiel Rijsbrack in 1737; a bust 
in white marble of the stadtholder Prince Willem II, probably by 
Rombout Verhulst. On the opposite side: two busts in terra cotta 
of the Princes of Orange, Philips Willem and Maurits by the Ant- 
werp sculptor Joan Claude De Cock (16..— 1735), and tinallv the 
plaster cast busts of the Stadtholder Willem IV and his consort, of 
which the original, sculptured in marble by J. B. Xavery, is found 
in the „Mauritshuis" at the Hague : as also the plaster cast busts ot the 
Stadtholder Willem V and of his consort Frederika Sophia Wilhelmina, 
Princess of Prussia, the original in marble of which by Marie Anne 
Falconet, n(}e Collot (1748— 1 821) may also be seen in the „Mauritshuis'\ 

High on the wall at both ends of the gallery there are symbolical 
representations painted by Mr. G. Sturm, born in Austria, by whose 
artistic talents not only the pupils of the Government school of Art 
applied to Industry are benefited, but who also by his pencil and 
brush contributed to the decoration of the building. These paint- 
ings are afterwards to be followed by others for which spaces are 
left open. As to the decoration of the top walls the following is to be 
noticed: each compartment is devoted to one of our provinces and 
destined to represent the share which each of them has had in the 
cultivation of Arts. In the centre of these spaces is to be placed a 
female figure as a symbol denoting the branch of art in which the 
province more especially excelled, and on either side figures occupied 
in the cultivation of this branch, while the coats-of-arms in the 
corners denote the province and its capital town. The south space 
relates to North -Holland, where painting, as the characteristic branch 
of this provmce, is represented by Rembrandt who, while bending 
his knee receives the laurel wreath out of the hands of the Amster- 
dam Virgin, while four artists, among whom the architect ot the 
Townhall, Jacob Van Campen, are placed around. Besides the southern 

— 31 — 



Grand gallery. 



compartment only the northern one is as yet ready, in this the 
coat-of-arms of Drenthe is joined to that of Groningen, because the 
former province cannot boast of any particular cultivation of Art and 
that there are found no other works of art than buildings in brick 
of the same kind as those found in Groningen. 

In the construction of the grand gallery, with the cabinets or 
recesses connected with it, a combination of briclvs and iron has 
been made, in a manner hitherto — iHo — not yet applied. 1} The 
central gallery has been entirely covered bv cross- and ribbed-vaults 
in brick, while the key-stone of the arched roof — formed by a 
stone ring supported by the vault rihs and closing them — emits 
daylight for lighting the nave. By the application of ratters composed 
of welded and wrought iron, connected with the brick vaulted roofs 
of the cabinets, a contrivance is made admitting of lighting from 
the top, and framing the different divisions into one whole. Besides 
the manner of decoration is peculiar and new; faithful to the prin- 
ciple once adopted, the construction is at once the point of departure 
for the ornamentation, even in its minutest details; for instance, 
the projections and clinch-nails of the iron beams are used as motives 
in the painted ornamentation. 

Visitors are cautioned that the names of the painters placed along 
the wall have no relation to the pictures hung beneath these; nearly 
every picture has the name of its artist on the frame; should it be 
wanting then it is uncertain by whom it was painted.

REMBRANDT HALL. ONE OF THE CARVATIDES. 



Rembrandt hall. Internal decoration. 

Day, a woman in her prime, surrounded by rays, with the sun- 
sceptre in her hand, (see pict. 9). 

Evening, a woman decked with flowers, with an olive branch 
in her hand; her head and the upper part of her body are covered 
with an embroidered veil. 

Night, dressed in a starry mantle; a veil covers her face; hold- 
ing a torch in one hand, she keeps herself wrapped in her mantle 
with the other. 

In the frieze on the walls several brackets of hewn stone have 
been placed, ingeniously alluding to the very meaning of these four 
caryatides, according as they are placed; so with Morning there is a 
crowing cock, the heads of a maiden and a youth on waking; with 
Noon — to express the southern character — an Egyptian woman, 
an eastern type and a lion; with Evening, most suitable to amu- 
sement, a female head decked with roses, is placed, moreover a male 
head in a fool's cap hinting at revelling; while with Night a bat, 
a female head in poppies, a sleepy female and male head, and a 
night-owl sufficiently express the meaning, (see pict. lo). 

Beginning above his master-piece and continued over the four 
walls some particulars of the great artist's life are stated in golden 
letters in the frieze, to the following purport: 

rembrandt, son to iiarmen iskrritsen van itljn and neei.tgen

Kloveniersdoele, (Arquebusiers' shooting- company), afterwards placed 
in the Burgomasters' room of the old Townhall; possession of the 
city of Amsterdam. 

In a fine oak shrine in the Rembrandt hall is deposited the Golden 
book of the Museum, destined for the signatures of Royal and other 
illustrious visitors. 

The first leaves in this book contain the record relating to the 
opening of the museum to the following purport: 



i) The civit-guards pk-nire by Hnls wns „inade up," i. e. in psn coinpleicd by 
Pieter Codde. (Cf. P. Schcl:enia. Aerastels Oudheid [Amiterdflm's Antiquity] VII 1345.

International hall. Pictures. 

'On July 13 of the year 1885, the 37th year of king William the 
Third's reign, the national Museum was opened in H. M's name 
by his Excellency the Minister of the Home Departement, Mr. Jan 
Heemskerk. 

The construction, begun in mdccclxxvii, was executed according to 
the plans and under the conduct of the Architect of the Museum 
Petrus Josephus Hubertus Cuijpers. 

In remembrance whereof this record is signed by the authorities 
present at the solemn opening, i). 

Carolingian- Going from the Rembrandt hall to the other picture- 
hall. No. 236 of halls we pass through a room, being an imitation ot 
the ground-plan, the emperor's hall of Charlemagne in the narthex ot 
St. Servatius's at Maestricht (see pict. 1 1). This hall belongs, so to say^ 
to the one situated underneath it, just as this is the case at Maestricht. 

The decoration of the door as also the curious window glass, 
nicely framed in lead, deserve particular notice. They are careful 
reproductions of various samples from a remote period. In the centre 
of the floor mosaic Charlemagne's initials are placed. 

International The hall entered next is the International hall 2), 
hall. No. 235 of thus named because the pictures of foreign masters

be seen the coats-of-arms of [countries and towns where art flou- 
rished of yore.

Augsburg, Nurnberg, Maestricht. 

b. Italy. Bologna, Sienna, Florence, Rome, Venice, Napels, Milan. 

c, France. Paris. 

d, Spain. Madrid. 

The Flemish school is represented in this hall best by far; the 
pictures by German masters are not sufficiently numerous to be 
kept separate and have therefore been Joined to the Flemish school. 
This is also the case with the Italian and French masters.

i) The subject of this picture lias been derived from the following; Sertorius, a 
Roman commander, once in presence of his army, had two horses led to the front, 
one of which was old and decrepit and the other fine and gallant, with a splendid 
tail thick and beautiful of hair. By the side of tlie weak horse a tall and strong 
man was placed, but near the powerhil animal there was a small and evidently

slight person. At a given sign the strong man began with both his hands to pull as 
hard as he could at the tail of his horse, as if he wished to pull it out, but the 
slight man began to pull out one by one the hair of the tail of the strong animal. 
Now, when the former, after having greatly bestirred himself to no purpose, had 
given up his impossible labour amid the laughing bystanders, but the latter without 
any trouble very soon rendered the tail bare, Sertorius pointed out to his men, how 
from this they might learn that perseverance, much more than violence, is sure to 
reach its aim and that many things which cannot be performed, when grasping the 
whole at once, will yield to gradual exertion. (Plutarch. Vit. Sert. c. 16). Commu-

By the side of this inscription may be noticed the coats-of-arms 
of Muilman and of the city of Amsterdam, right and left the escut- 
cheon of the painters' guilds, and on the opposite side the coat-of- 
arms of the family Van de Poll. 

The escutcheon of Muilman hints at the founder of the original 
nucleus of this collection, Hendrik Muilman, born of one of the 
principal families of Harlem, well known for its love of art.- The 
collection made by Hendrik Muilman consisted of 193 pictures, for 
the greater part by masters of the Old-Dutch school, and of a 
number of drawings and engravings. On his death this collection 
was sold, and a considerable portion was transferred to other cabinets 
of art; e. g. Karel Du Jardin to the collection of G. MuUer, the 
Milkmaid by the Delft Vermeer to that of Six, and the Jan Steen 



i) By his last will of December 25, 1879, Jonkheer Jacobus Salomon Hendrik 
Van de Poll, Alderman of the village of Velzen, born at Amsterdam, July 28, 1837, 
deceased there Febniary 23, 1880, has bequeathed his collection of pictures to the 
National Museum at Amsterdam.

to that of Van der Hoop. However, the son of the deceased bought 
afl pictures from the collection and on his death left them, together 
with the family portraits, to his daughter Anna Maria Muilman. By 
her marriage with Jhr. Archibald Jan Van de Poll, the collection 
came into possession of the lattcr's son, Jhr. J. S. H. Van de Poll, 
who bequeathed it to the Museum.

Prof. Nicolaes Tulp, in 1 828 sold to King William I and at present

the Surgeons' Guild, was sold December 20, 1841, but was bought 
again for the account of the city of Amsterdam, April 11, 1882. At

No. 214 of the pictures exhibited in it are the family portraits oi 
ground-plan. the old Amsterdam family Bicker. This collection 
belongs to the city of Amsterdam, as is intimated by the inscription, 
together with the arms of Bicker and of the Capital on the east side 
of the hall:

Before mentioning the principal pictures, the painted decoration 
of the hall requires our attention for a moment. At the top, in the 
middle, are seen the emblems of the temperaments : a snail, a crow, 
a butterfly and a turkey, each on as many shields, diversified by 
painted suspending plants. On the west side, are the emblems of 
sovereignty and nobility represented by escutcheons with different 
crowns and by others, enriched with the principal figures of heraldry. 
On the east side, besides the inscription mentioned just now, there 
are escutcheons having relation to tailors, which hardly requires any 
explanation, since the presence of various portraits, chiefly remarkable 
for the costumes, serves to account for this homage to one of the 
oldest professions of social life, viz. tailoring. 

Continuing the enumeration of the pictures, and beginning on 
the spectator 's dexter side, wesee, among others the 44 portraits 
of the Bicker family, some of which are hanging in the Passage 
from the Dupper- to the Portrait-hall. Near the Porlrait-ball stands 
the beautiful marble bust (made by Bart Van Hove) of the poet

1) The subject is liable to doubt; on one band tlie two peacoclis in the back- 
ground make us think of Juno, but on clie other hand the woman represented might 
be meant for the nymph Calisto. The piece takes its origin from the coliection of 
llamilcon-paiacL', under Che incorrect name of „Nards."

Cabinets. the Entrance- hall. 

Cabinet No 374 contains the legacy of Miss Liotard, consisting 
of crayon drawings from the 181I1 century, Jean Etienne Liotard. 
her grandfather, from whose hand this collection is, was born at 
Geneva in 1702, and died there in 1789. He excelled in making 
portraits with pastel, a sort of coloured chalk, used again at present, 
and which requires very great artistic skill in the handling. There 
exist also portraits enamelled by him on copper, of which a very 
fine specimen is in this Cabinet. 

Nine portraits of Princes and Princesses of Orange-Nassau bv Johan 
Friedrich August Tischbein (1750— 18123^ likewise drawn in crayon 
and showing an extraordinary talent in this line, are placed in this 
Cabinet too. On the wall we see the arms of Liotard and of his 
native country, Switzerland, and an inscription to this effect;

Van der Hoop The spacious hall which we enter now con 

Museum- tains the Van der, Hoop Museum. 

No. 26y oFthe gnmiid- We insert here some paniculars about this 
P'""' celebrated collection i), though to many they 

may not be unknown. 

By his considerable wealth, the founder succeeded in recovering 
from abroad and carrying back to this country some excellent pro- 
ductions of our Old-Dutch school of painting; but not merely in this 
respect did Van der Hoop manifest his love of liberal art, he also 
encouraged and appreciated the artists among his contemporaries. A 
collection of art, such as is but seldom gathered by a private gentle- 
man, was more especially the object of his care and love. When his 
last will and testament was opened, it became evident that the con- 
siderable sums, spent for this collection, had been paid not for his 
own enjoyment only. For he made of the valuable cabinet of pictures 
a legacy to the city of Amsterdam, on condition that it was to be 
exhibited for the benefit of the town poor. 

For reasons of a financial nature — the sum required for payment 
of the conveyance — the town-council could not at once enter 
upon this legacy. A committee was formed, consisting of Messrs: 
H. J. Koenen, LL. D., J. J. A. Santhagens, J. De Vos Jbz., F. De 
Wildt, LL. D., J. Wittering, C. J. Fodor and C. E. Vnillant, LL. D.,

with the aim of collecting the sum required by voluntary comribu 
tions from patrons of art. 

Though the exertions of [his committee did not prove fruitless, 
and the Town-council resolved to grant a contribution, yet, on the 
day when a final decision was to be arrived at, a considerable figure 
was still wanting. However, three members of the committee subscri- 
bed for the deficit, and so this splendid collection could be preserved 
for the country and especially for Amsterdam, and the legacy 
entered upon July 3, 1854. 

Soon after, two halls for its reception were arranged in the former 
Hospital for Old men, subst^quently the Royal Academy of Liberal 
Art and now the University; so that this fine collection could be 
opened to the public. 

After the death of the widow, Mrs. A. Van der Hoop, in i 
24 pieces more which adorned her residence were added to the Museum. 
An agreement, entered upon by the State and the city of Amsterdam 
on November 11, iBBo,secured to the collectiona place in the National 
Museum, on condition that it is to remain separate and is to be exhibited 
gratis, but that, to comply with the provisions of the last will, a sum 
of /'400 is to be paid yearly to the Town for the benefit of the poor. 
In remembrance of the founder his escutcheon and that of his wife 
are placed in the hall; the legacy being recorded in an inscription 
to the following effect;

At the extremity of the Van der Hoop hall stands the marble

is, on conditions afterwards to be agreed upon, to offer to the City 
of Amsterdam the products of art, by preference from the hand ot 
living masters of the Dutch school, which they have collected. 

Meanwhile, in consequence of an agreement of June 14, 1885, 
between the Society and the State a couple of rooms of the Museum 
have been ceded for the exhibition of this still increasing collection.

political events of i B30 delayed the execution of the plan of adapting

for many years was finantially supported by the Province and the 
town of Harlem. The pictures, which of late years, by purchase at 
exhibitions and by sundry donations, had reached the number of 184, 
were, with some pieces of sculpture, transferred, in 1885, to the 
National Museum at Amsterdam. For the history of the development 
of the Dutch school of painting of the 19th century this collection 
is rather important, especially with regard to the classical and the 
subsequent romantic tendency of this school, in the first half of the 
century. In 1880 there appeared a carefully edited ^Description of

i) Antonius Hambroeck, bom at Rotterdam in 1605 or 1606, was beheaded in 
the isle of Formosa, July 5, 1661. His tragical end is connected with the following 
Hicts: in 1666 the Chinese Coxinga tried to take the isle from the Dutch E. I. Com- 
pany ; the commander of the Dutch garrison, Goyet, however, held out in the fortress 
Zelandia, and Coxinga, justly fearing that from this point an opportunity should 
be offered to the E. I. Company's troops to recover the isle, required Hambroeck, 
whom he had made his prisoner, to persuade Goyet to leave the fortress. The com- 
mander was not to be prevailed upon, and Hambroeck, to keep his pledged word, 
returned to Coxinga and was beheaded by order of the latter. The scene represents 
the clergyman saying a last farewell to his family and his countrymen.

Governors' room. Archeological Society, erected in 1858 witb 

No. 248 ot the the purpose of founding in Amsterdam a Museum 

groimd-plan. ^j- ^|^g ^^^^ ^f ^^^ Counts and Scadtholders 

Holland, and of discussing in regular meetings whatever relates t< 

archeology. The chief seat of this society is the building of the 



Royal Archeol, Society, Gold- leather room. 



Mint, where have been brought together a library, a collection of 
prints and drawings relating to Amsterdam and to the customs and 
uses of the ancestois, as well as a collection of coins and medals. 
The objects of art and those of an historical nature have been 
ceded as loans to the State and are exhibited in different places in 
the National Museum. 

We are here carried back to a 1 7tli century Governors' room, the 
ceiling of which, divided into compartments, shows beautiful allego- 
rical painting by Gerard De Lairesse, taken from the former Hospital 
for lepers at Amsterdam. The walls are decked with ancient woven 
tapestry and some representations of Governors; the corresponding 
furniture, as: tables, chairs, presses, etc. forming, with the old-fashioned 
fire-place, a quaint whole. Peculiar attention should be paid to 
the nice sculpture of the mantlepiece, also taken from the Hospital 
for lepers, to the marble bust of burgomaster Andries De GraefF, 
sculptured by A. Quellinus in 1661 and that of Johannes Munter 
made by B. Eggers in 1673, as also to two marble medallion por- 
traits of Burgomaster Cornelis De Graeff and of his wife Catharina 
Hooft, from the hand of A. Quellinus in 1660. 

Gold-leather ^^ ^ contiguous room with a gold-leather hang- 

room, ing, different objects of art and also curiosities 

No. 249 of the are exhibited, partly being the property of the 
ground-plan. Society and partly in its use as loans. To these 

latter belongs a fine i7tli century picture, perhaps by Willem Cor- 
nelisz. Duyster, representing the marriage-party of Adriaen Ploos 
Van Amstel, Lord of Oudegein and Tienhoven, and of Agnes Van 
Byler, widow Broeckhuysen. The piece belongs to the family Ploos 
Van Amstel, who have, for a time, ceded it, along with other 
family relics. 

Among the pictures, we should pay attention to a piece by L. M. 
Dumesnil, representing the reception of Cornelis Hop as ambassador 
of the States-General of the United Netherlands at the court of 
Louis XV, King of France, July 24, 17 19. Further a collection of 
drinking-vessels and bumpers from the 17^11 and i8tli centuries, placed 
in a cupboard, deserves peculiar attention. 

Among the furniture we notice a wooden seat, used by William

Having viewed these paintings, we return to the Entrance- hall 
and, by the same stairs by which we came up, we now descend to 
the ground floor to examine the other collections of art. 

Passing a marble figure of Ceres, bequeathed to the Museum by 
Mr. J. Hilman, in 1881, and some casts of Greek statues, derived 
from the gallery of statues of the late Society „Felix Meritis", i) 



i) This society was dissolved in 1889; its collections were divided as follows: 
the books were added to the University library, some pictures, among which the 
celebrated „Endless Prayer" by N. Maes, came to the city of Amsterdam, that

we descend a second staircase leading to the covered west inner- 
court, where we see lodged the:

those who are

articles of industry 
and others taking 
an interest in these 
pursuits. Though 
only in 1B-9 a be- 
ginning has been 
made with this col- 
lection, yet it counts 
already several in- 
teresting samples 
highly important to the knowledge of art from periods long past. 
Among the principal we notice the following:

Casts. 



In the centre rises above everything else the cast of the south 
porch of St. Servatius' church at Maestricht, one of the oldest monu- 
ments of Christian art in the Netherlands, perhaps as early as the 
6tii century. The central reliefs represent Mary's death, burial and 
coronation, the arches and the spaces between the columns being 
decorated with the figures of apostles patriarchs kings and prophets 

Behind this porch, wo see 
a copy of the monumen- 
tal tomb of Engelbrecht 
11, Count of Nassau, Ba- 
ron of Breda, general and 
confident of the Emperor 
Charles V, and of his con- 
sort Limburg of Baden. 
Though this monument 
was formerly, but erro- 
neously, attributed to Mi- 
chel Angelo, the name of 
its maker is unknown. The 
effigies of the count and 
his consort are lying on a 
mat rolled up under their 
heads. Four generals; Cae- 
sar, Regulus, Hannibal and 
Philippus of Macedonia 
resting on one knee, carry 
a stone abacus with the 
count's armour (i6cli cent.l 

To the right of this portion of thf pirch of st ser^atiis 

there is a reproduction of church at miestricht 

another Dutch work of art from the latter half of the 1 5th century, 
viz. the oak stall of St. Martin's- church at BoJsward richly ornamented 
with carvings. Over the seats the frontals are nicely worked with 
tracery, the stiles being adorned with figures; on the lower edge of 
the seats, which may be turned up, there are misereres enriched 
with quaint figures; the two side-pieces have bassi-relievi, as: the 
fall of Manna, the baptism of Christ and others.

Opposite this stall is the cast of the stall in the Renaissance style 
from the church of Dordrecht, executed by Jan Aertsz.Terwen (1511 — 
1589). This master-piece of wood chiseling was completed by him 
in 1539. The slender columns over the seats are exquisitely worked. 
The misereres, as in the Bolsward stall, are enriched with antics. 

At the back of the stall there is a copy of the doorway of the 
orphanage at Enkhuizen Cv'' cent.), besides some casts of chiseling 
by A. Qaellinus. 

Near it is plactd a copy of the brass font of the Cathedral at 
Breda, with a wrought-iron crane to remove the lid at the ceremony 
of baptism ([6tl) cent.). 

Behind the two stalls may be seen a copy of the oaken screen 
with bronze columns from the West-church at Enkhuizen, remark- 
able for beautifully carved mythological and biblical scenes in Re- 
naissance style ([(5tli cent.). 

Over it, on the west wall, is the organ of the Lutherian church 
at Amsterdam, of the year 1692. The doors are painted on the inside 
by Philip Tideman, a pupil of Gerard De Lairesse. 

Lower on the wall: a copy of the tombstone of Johannis De 
Borgnival, of 1536, the original of which is found in the Cathedral 
at Breda. 

Further to the dexter side: a copy of the tomb of Christ from 
the Cathedral at Utrecht with beautiful, but greatly damaged Gothic 
sculpture (is'li cent.). 

On the north wall: 

a copy of the Sedilia (containing three seats for priests) from the 
„Bovenkerk" at Kampen ( 1 y^' cent,). — The organ with painted doors 
from the church at Scheemda (i6ili cent.). — The organ removed 
from the Nicolai church at Utrecht (latter part of the 15111 cent.). 

— Tomb-stone of Uriel van Geramingen, Archbishop and Elector of 
Mayence, (150^ — 1514) remarkable as a type of the Transition from 
the Gothic to the Renaissance style (early part of the i^cli cent.), 

— Monument of Siegfried 111 of Eppstein, Archbishop of Mayence; 
to the right the efBgi of the king of the Roman Empire, William 
II, Count of Holland (13111 cent,). 

On the south wall: a copy of part of the ceiling of the castle at 

Jever, an exquisite sample of carving in Renaissance style, probably

Dutch art, (i6tli cent.). Somewhat further there is a reproduction in 
part of the fagade of the townhall at the Hague (i6tli cent.). A little 
further on a small but exceedingly fine church organ (first half 
1 6th century), originating with the church at Haringcarspel, adorned 
with coats-of-arms and painted carving. Further some casts of arch- 
heads, etc. from the fagade of Maerten Van Rossum's house at Zalt- 
Bommel. 

Among the remaining objects most attention is due to the cast of 
an oaken press from the 17th century, and further to castings of 
columns and capitals from the crypts of the churches at Rolduc, 
Maastricht and Rinsumageest, etc. 

Further may be seen a collection of sculptured old gable-front 
stones from demolished houses, for the greater part from Amsterdam. 
They form a long row on the east side; several of them bearing 
witness of a masterhand of sculpture, especially three among them, 
representing a distribution to the poor in the iyt\\ century, taken 
from the gable of the Almshouse. These exquisite pieces are attributed 
to the celebrated architect-sculptor Hendrick De Keyser i).

^the'^Lunl hn ""^ logical Society and fitted up as a 17th cen- 
tury Dutch parlour, containing a bed-stead. The 
old furniture, especially the presses, chairs, fire-place, etc. with all 
the rest bear the Early- Dutch type. On the wall there are some old 
pictures, as a large view of the castle at Egmont, showing in front 
many figures in the dress of the i6th century, as also a picture by 
an unknown master from the first half of the 17th century, and 
probably an imitation of an older picture, representing the trial of 
the Bailiff of South-Holland in 1336; by Count William the Good; 2) 
a portrait of Pieter Dircksz., called Longbeard, Burgomaster of Edam, 
in 1583. — further the picture of an ox, with a wreath of green

2) Count William III being ill at Valenciennes, ordered a Bailiff, who had taken 
from a farmer in South-Holland a fine cow, and given him a bad one instead, to 
pay 100 golden crowns, and thereupon had him beheaded.

leaves round its neck, won by an Amsterdam bow-man at a shooting 
match. This piece has been painted by Jacob Cornelisz. Van Oost- 
zaan, and has the following superscription:

ende was hooch seshalve voet als hy stoin 
ende dick X voete ic liech niet een gruym 
de lenchte was iust XII voet min IIII duym.

On the frame there is this elucidation: 

Dese OS is gewonnen scutterlic 
van Jacob Reyerszoon Boon 
doe ten tweedemael die papegay 
was gheset vast suuer schoon .2). 

Over the fire-place there is an old picture in remembrance of an 
ice-berg, which in the afternoon of January 2, 1565 at high-tide was 
floated up the Maes and got fixed at the pier of Delfshaven. This 
huge nuisance had a height of 23 feet and a length of 19 rods. Last 
century this picture was in the orphanage at Delft. 

The contiguous cabinet contains some 1 7th century furniture, among 
which a nice inlaid case, gold-leather hanging, some old portraits in 
oil colours and a fine landscape of Delfware, probably made by Frytom. 

Hall of the In the next hall there is a remarkable coUec- 

Admirals. tion of painted portraits of Admirals and Gene- 

No. 189 ground-plan, ^dih^ and of pictures representing naval engagements 
and battles, from different periods, but for the greater part from the 
17th century. 

Beginning on the south side of the hall, the principal 
pieces are : 1 599. Hendrik Cornelisz. Vroom. Return of the vessel in 
which Cornelis Houtman made his first voyage to India, August 

i) This ox weighed rather more than nineteen hunderd and twelve pound??, stood 
five feet and a half, was ten feet in circumference, without exaggt/ation; its length 
was just 4 inches less than twelve feet. 

2) This ox was won in shooting by Jacob Reyerszoon Boon, when the peacock, 
as an aim, had been firmly placed for the second time.

Engravings. Collection of engravings and drawings. 

Nos. 197 and 198 of The Collection of Engravings was removed 
the ground-plan. \^ jgid from the Royal library at The Hague, 
to Amsterdam, and there added to the National Museum of Pictures 
in exchange of the Numismatic collection, which was then trans- 
ferred to the royal residence. The collection came into existence by 
the purchase of the engravings by Van Ley den, in 1 809, and, after 
its being conveyed to Amsterdam, it was continually increased,

especially by purchases at the auction of the collection of Count 
Von Fries, and of that of the print-seller Josi. i) 

Few countries have produced so many able engravers in wood 
and metal as Holland, so that, as early as the 17th century, it occur- 
red to private persons to collect their works. Rembrandt is the chief 
of the Dutch artists, but not only as a painter; for he handled 
the burin with as much genius as the brush. Many of his pupils 
excelled equally in painting as in engraving; the latter art reached, 
so to say, its acme in our country in the 17th century; for that 
period produced the greatest number of engravers. But to study 
and appreciate any one subdivision of art, we must be able to take 
a review of the entire history of its development, and the oppor- 
tunity of doing so can only be offered by a very extensive collection. 
Where the powers of private persons would undoubtedly fail the 
State has taken the matter in hand, and so the National Collection 
of Engravings was formed. This excellent institution for the study 
of our great masters has been entirely organised by and is under 
the directorship of Mr. J. Ph. Van den Kellen 2). In 1887 the col- 
lection counted about 150,000 engravings, rather more than 400 
illustrated works, and 400 drawings 3); from that time the different 
items have been considerably increased. In 1881 the important 
historical atlas concerning the history of the country, compiled by 
the late Mr. Frederik Muller was purchased by the Government 
for about 30,000 guilders (£ 9500) and added to the cabinet. From 
time to time the Collection of Engravings was greatly extended by pre- 
sents, one of the most important being a considerable collection of por- 
traits of celebrated persons, offered in 1871 by Mr. D. Franken Dzn. 

One portion of the finest and most important engravings and 
drawings is exhibited, arranged, as near as possible, to chronological 



Louis Napoleon, king of Holland, was the real founder of the Cabinet ot 
Engravings, as well as of the Museum of Pictures. 

2) Mr. \'an der- Kellen is assisted by the Sub-director Jhr. W. Hora Siccama and 
Mr. J. A. Boland, Assistent. 

3) The collection of drawings dates from a more recent time and owes its 
existence entirely to the unremitted exertions of the 'Referendaris' (section chief- 
official) Jhr. Mr. Victor De Stuers and the zealons endeavours of Mr. J. Ph. Van 
der Kellen.

order and according to the schools. The six columns in the middle 
of the hall have been used for the exhibition of a number of engra- 
vings, while another portion, also behind glass, is placed on standsr 
near the windows and on the cupboards. 

Entering the hall from the one of the Admirals, we see a collec- 
tion of engravings of foreign schools and beginning at the first 
column, among others; of H. Aldegrever (1502— 1563). His portret 
and three dagger sheaths. — L. Cranach, the Elder Ci472— 1553).

(1607-1677) after P. Boel. Dead game. — C. Mellan (1.S98 -1688). 
Veronica's handkerchief. This picture is a real curiosity in engraving, 
since Christ's face, according to tradition leaving an impression oq 
the handkerchief, is here represented by a single spiral line begin- 
ning at the nose and so going round without any cross lines, the 
light and shadowy parts being obtained by making the line broadfer 
or thinner, as may be required. — Marcus Pitteri. Christ on the Cross- 
This print is not less remarkable for the manner of working with 
straight lines, without cross lines; light and shadow being obtained 
only by making the lines thicker or thinner. — P. I. Drevct (1697

Proceeding we find the Dutch school of engraving exhi- 
bited in chronological order at the successive columns, the stands near 
the windows to the side of the street joining them. On the cases 
placed between the columns the drawings are exhibited, likewise in 
chronological order, and of which some of the most remarkable will 
presently be mentioned. First of all our attention is riveted by the 
so-called „inconnus" by „the master of the Jardins d'amour", and 
the ,,master of 1480"; which are placed in two frames against the 
arch of the wall. They are exceedingly rare, and of most of them 
but a single copy is known. The collection contains about 90 pieces of 
these masters, consequently more than all the other cabinets in Europe 
together. Of course together with the etchings of Rembrandt they 
constitute the glory ot the Amsterdam collection of plates. — From 
the „master of 1480" we see exhibited nine to the left side, among 
which: the Youth and Death, - the Cardplayers. — An equal num- 
ber to the right side, among which : the Meeting of Mary and Elisa- 
beth, — and the Conversion of St. Paul. From the „master of the 
Jardins d'amour, St. Eloy. — On the first column are exhibited the 
engravings of masters of the i6tb century, i. a. Corn. Antonisz., the

Nos. [yo and 191 ot the door on the south side of the exhibition 
the ground-plan. hall of the Cabinet of Engravings. The library- 
is under the management of the Director of the collection of Engra- 
vings 1). its nucleus is formed by books and illustrated or engraved 
works relating to art-history, to special subdivisions of art and auxi- 
liary sciences. The catalogue of the books exists in manuscript only; 
the books are derived from or belong to the collections and insti- 
tutions embodied in the Museum. In 1885 it gained in importance 
by the collection of books and engravings, ceded as a loan by 
Professor J. A. Alberdingk Thym; but in consequence of his decease 
the use of this collection, formed by dint of much trouble and 
expense, came to an end in [889. Consequently the verses over the 
East wall of the Library hall have lost much of their significance:

(Though Science and Art may often be at variance, here a hall 
is devoted to the Science of Art, may Art never despise the favour 
of Science, nor Science the delicate hand of Art.) 

In the Library also the numismatic collections of Van Gelder and 
Stephanik are exhibited; the former is still to be organised and is 
not yet to be seen, but admittance is allowed to the latter which 
contains more exclusively Dutch coins; the catalogue of it has been 
printed and may be obtained.

Dutch Museum, Textile art^ etc. 



Dutch Museum for History and Art. 

By the great variety of what is exhibited here, this collection 
justly proves a great attraction for many. As early as the year 1863 
the plan was conceived of founding a Museum for the country's 
antiquities, the realisation of which, owing to various circumstances, 
was, however, delayed, so that the objects, obtained for this collec- 
tion remained scattered in various places. 

We feel bound to mention that though the plan was formerly 
suggested by others, the realisation of it is due to Jhr. Mr. Victor 
De Stuers. 

In 1875 a house was rented at the Prinsengracht in the Hague, 
where these objects were exhibited until the new National Museum 
should be ready. By means of purchases and donations the collec- 
tion soon increased considerably, and to it were added the objects 
of Dutch origin, up to that time contained in the Royal Cabinet 
of Curiosities, dissolved since. In 1883 the Dutch Museum was 
transferred to the National Museum at Amsterdam, where subse- 
quently the eastern wing downstairs and a couple of halls in the 
western wing were accommodated for its reception. Though the or- 
ganisition of all the subdivisions of this collection had then not been 
fully carried out, yet it could be opened to the public, June 12, 1887. 
In consequence of arrangements made with the Royal Antiquarian 
Society, the objects of this body, lately exhibited in its Museum in 
the Spuistraat, have been ceded as a loan to the Dutch Museum 
and have been incorporated into it. 

In 1887 the models of the Navy Office have also been added to 
this collection. 

The management of this Museum has been committed to Mr. David 
Van der Kellen Jr. i)

Dutch Mmeum. Textile art, 

of objects of textile art, costumes, musical instruments, 
children's toys, paper cuttings, etc. 

By the term textile art we understand woven stuffs manufactured 
after patterns of artists, or also projected and executed by the skilful 
hand of the workman himself. Under this head we find here in the 
showcases not merely richly embroidered wearing apparel (men's 
coats and waistcoats and female clothing of the 1 8th century), but 
also ladies' dresses up to about 1R50, at the same time important 
for the history of fashion in the iptli century. Not less interesting, 
are the pieces of woven and embroidered stuffs exhibited in the. 
revolving stands. Besides, some richly with gold-wire and silk embroi- 
dered ecclesiastical attire from the 151I1 to the i/th century worthily 
represents the artistic needlework of that time. Clothes remarkable 
for some specific historical fact connected with them, are: the nicely 
embroidered herald's coat-of-armour emblazoned with the coat-of- 
arms of the Prince of Orange and which, of yore, was suspended 
near the mausoleum of Willem the Silent at Delft on one of the 
columns of the chancel of the church. 1) In strong contrast with this 
gay coat-of-armour appears the plain black cloak which the Grand- 
Pensionary Jan De Witt wore in the evening when Jacob De Graef, 
in 1673, assaulted him in the street with the intention to murder 
him. The buff jacket in the same case dates from the [st half of 
the i/tii century and was obtained, in 18R9, by purchase at 
auction of objects of art, left behind by the painter H. F. C. Ten 
Kate; it takes its origin from the 'Huis' (estate of) llpenstein at 
Ilpendam. Further we notice here some specimens of shoes from the 
i^rh and i8tli centuries. 

The collection of musical instruments is still being formed, con^ 
sisting now of some harpsichords, violins, base-viols, and other 
stringed instruments, among which a fine harp. The wind-instruments 
offer little of peculiar interest. On the other hand among the chil- 
dren's toys some rather pretty objects may be found. In one of the

cases we see a miniature coach and pair, from the middle of the 
1 8 th century, as also a stage-coach of about 1820 with the super- 
scription: „Koninklyke Postwagen (royal post-chaise) from Amster- 
dam to Ghent to perform the journey in 24 hours"; the punctuality 
of the time of departure and arrival and the relative swiftness at 
which the vehicle moved along gained it the name of„diligence". The 
presses are filled with dolls, miniature furniture, figures in tin from 
the 1 8th century, among which foot-soldiers and horse, and numbers 
of other toys. Near one of the windows stands a very well worked 
model of the stage of the old Amsterdam Theatre bequeathed to 
the Museum by Mr. Johannes Hilman. 

A species of art-industry which in the 2"d half of the i8th and 
the early part of the 19th century was very much in vogue in this 
country and was strongly encouraged, consisted in artistic paper 
works, as : monuments and representations of Buildings manufactured 
of card board, with great patience and often with a certain amount 
of skill, as may be seen here in three artistic specimens; an artist in 
this line was Johannes Hubertus Reygers, born at Gorinchem in 1767 i). 

High on the wall are paraded some ancient wall tapestries of the 
early part of the 1 7th century and canvasses, painted in lim€ colours, 
having served as chamber hangings (i8th century). 

Ceramic ball. In the show-cases before the windows on the 

No. 203 of the ground- side of the street there is a mixed collection ot 
P^^"* dishes, etc. of home and foreign origin. That 

the old-Delft earthenware is not better represented here is to be 
attributed to the circumstance that the fine specimens are scarcely 
ever offered for sale, since almost everything of the kind has found 
its way to public or private collecfions abroad, and that in Holland 
itself the taste for this eminently national product of art is, as yet, 
only in its birth. 

In the east part of the hall, standing out in relief against old silk 
hangings of a Chinese pattern, we see a group of fine pots, jugs, 
vases, etc. manufactured, in the days of yore, in the celebrated

china factories of the Celestial empire. They excel not only by 
their elegant form, decoration and transparent enamel, but ; 
attract attention by their large dimensions. 

On the side of the inner-court are exhibited, in fi 
between the windows, all sorts of home-made earthenware and 
china, among which some Delft earthenware again, and sundry 
specimens of china from the factories at Oud-Loosdrecht, Weesp; 
Ouder-Amstel and The Hague, Foreign countries, viz. Italy, France, 
England and Germany, are more or less represented. The contents 
of the black show-cases in the middle of the hall are inhnitely r 
important; they contain a treasure of, for the greater part, ancient 
Chinese porcelain and earthenware, mostly dating from the time 
of the E. I. Company. The Japanese lacquer work and some objectS' 
executed in bronze, also give a high idea of Japanese skill. A lacquered 
table of the first half of the itjtli century deserves special attention, 
while a small collection of Chinese art-work in ivory i 
interesting. 

Further the eye is caught by a model of the secluded islet ol 
Decima, near the town of Nagasaki, with the Dutch colony there 
during the i7rli and iBtli centuries. 

Among the other objects worth seeing contained in this hall be- 
long the three models of Old-Amsterdam houses; the finest is the 
one covered with tortoise-shell, and ornamented with white metal 
inlaid work. According to tradition Christoffel Brandt, Peter the 
Great's agent at Amsterdam, is said to have had this house made 
by order of the Emperor. It seems that 25 years have been bestowed 
on it at an expense of 30,000 guilders (£ 2500); dating from rhfi 
latter part of the i/th or the early part of the i8tli century, 
contains all the furniture that was then found in an aristocratic 
dwelling at the 'Heeren- or Keizersgracht'. It should be noticed that 
every object has been made by men of the particular trade, so that 
every handicraft or profession contributed its own share to form a 
perfect whole. 

The next house is from the I'c half of the iBih century. Willi 

respect to its architecture it is rather interesting, the exterior forni 

of the house having been imitated; but the execution of the interior 

is much simpler than that of the former.

Dutch Museum, East inner court. 



The third house, coming from the family Ploos van Amstel, is 
supposed to be inhabited by a Doctor i) and dates from the ist half 
of the 1 8th century. Of the 12 apartments the most remarkable is 
the parlour, the physician's study containing a library, a collection 
of preparations, and a collection of shells and artistic objects in ivory, 
every item of it in miniature. The facade with its wide door, over 
which the initials P(loos) V(an) A(mstel) are interlaced in an 
artistic manner, is three stories high. 

Before leaving the hall we notice on either side of the door two 
panels of variegated tiles of a fine symetrical ornamentation; they 
have come from Tunis and have been purchased at the International 
Colonial Exhibition held here in 1883. 

East Inner court. Passing through the East principal entrance 

No. 211 of the ground- of the Museum on the 'Stadhouderskade' we 

P^^"* reach the properly so-called Dutch Museum 

for History and Art. Visitors of the collection of pictures may also 

go thither by the stairs on the east side of the Fronthall. The 

staircase has the following inscription taken from the book of Psalms:

In the entrance hall behind the vestiary is the wooden statue of 
the giant Goliath with his armiger to his right and David to his 
left; the latter holds his sling and stone in his hand. The giant, 
and probably the other two statues, have been chiselled by the 
famous Albert Jansz. Vinckenbrinck (born about 1604; died 1664) 
or at least made in his studio. 3) This group has come from the

} First of all we direct our steps to the East Inner court where i 

i chiefly collected whatever relates to the navy, military matters? 

national costumes and some objects related to colonial 
history- We purpose to fix the attention merely to those things 
* which deserve especially to be mentioned; so, no catalogue is to be 

expected, but only a Guide, as the objects are as plentiful as black- 
' berries in autumn. However, those who are desirous of a more 

I explicit elucidation, may be referred to the special Guide 10 the Dutch 

Museum, compiled by Mr. D. Van der Kellen Jr. 1} 

In the middle of the Inner court there is an enclosure *here the 

1 objects relating to the Dutch Navy are exhibited. On the 6oor we 

I see fine models of Men-of-war, the oldest of which, placed close to 

'■ the entrance, represents a vessel of the line of 1698. The others date 

I from the iSrli and the first half of the iptli century. By far the 

greater part are highly finished. On the table against the wall smaller 

models of ships are standing and over them half-models are fixed; 

higher still among chiselled stanchions, many centuries old, having 

\ been taken from the old Banqueting hall at the 'BinnenhoT in The 

Hague, the names of the principal Dutch naval heroes, with the 

year of their birth and that of their death, adorn the wall. In the 

centre we see a venerable trophy, viz. a tolerably well preserved 

wooden coat-of-arms of the Kings of England from the stern of the 

admiral ship, taken by the Dutch in 1667; 

; „The Royal Charles." 

■ Built: In 1655 and, after Cromwell's famous victory, called „The 
, Naseby." The ship was 131 feet long, 42 wide and the hold rather 

more Chan 20 feet, was of 1229 tons' burden, and was calculated to

at anchor off Scheveningen, to take on board king Charles, she received 
the name of The Royal Charles, after which the said proud emblems 
were cut away and burnt by the English sailors, and the head of 
Cromwell's image was hanged, i) 

Used: as an admiralship, as early as the first English-Dutch 
naval war, she was held in high honour by the English, especially 
when she had brought back the king from his exile. Andrew Marvel, 
in a poem, mentioned in Sir William Penn's Memoirs, writes: 



>i 



That sacred keel, that pleasure-boat of war. 
Now a cheap spoil, and the mean victor's slave." 



Taken: June 22, 1667 by captain Thomas Tobyas and lieutenant 
Bartholomeus Jacobs. The expedition to Chatham took place under 
the command of Admiral De Ruyter, but contrary to what is some 
times asserted, De Ruyter has not been present at the capture ot 
the Royal Charles. Cornelis De Witt writes, June 23, to the States- 
General : „after yesterday's encounter Lieut. AdmU De Ruyter .... 
has come to us here." Van Ghent, Johan De Lieffde and Van Nes 
write to the same purport. 

Broken up: in 1673, chiefly from the ship's being deemed unfit 
for use. Since that time the coat-of-arms of the stern remained in a 
forgotten nook in one of the store-houses at Hellevoetsluis, till (about 
1830) the Rear- Admiral J. S. May had it removed to Rotterdam 
and placed over the door of the armory in the large Store-house 
of the Navy. Thence it was transferred, about 1850, to the room 
for models of the Navy Office; in the year i 883^„this unique remaining 
piece of the ship and an important memorial of national glory" has 
found its place in the Museum. 

Opposite the entrance of the central compartment is placed the 
project of a Monument for the Dutch forces in Acheen;

the huge figure represents a winged Victory, made by the sculp- 
tor Bart Van Hove, The pedestal has the following inscriptions |[ 
(in Dutch): 

Front: „To the founders of Dutch power in North-Sumatra , 
1873-1880." 

Right: „Sacred to us is the remembrance of the fallen," 

Left: „The navy and the landforces brilliantly upheld the honour 
of the country." 

In front of this monument and surrounded by all sorts of cannon 
is a large bust of Prins Hendrik, Admiral of the Dutch fleet. It is 
the model made by F, Stracke for the bronze bust, which in remem- 
brance of this Prince has been placed at the 'Prins - He ndrikkade'. 

Beside the entrance of the central compartment there are two 
pictures representing horses, one of which, painted by De Gheyn, is 
the likeness of the steed of the 'Admirant' of Arragon who was 
taken prisoner at the battle of Nieuwpoort, July 1, 1600. It does 
not appear to be known for certain which historical remembrance 
may be connected with the other horse, the black one. Lower down 
there is a series of little portraits, but without any artistic value, of 
the Governors-General of the Dutch East-Indies, etc.; a drawing by 
C. T. Reimer of 1772, representing the audience of the Dutch 
governor of Ceylon granted to the ambassadors of the king of 
Candia; for, as is well known, Ceylon was formerly a Dutch colony, 
which in the latter part of the iSili century came into the hands 
of England. Among the objects of an historicial nature of more 
recent times, we notice four Dutch dags of the men-of-war „the 
Medusa," „the Amsterdam," „the Djambi" and „Metalen Kruis,'^ 
noted for their exploits in the Japan seas ([863 — 18154), A silvai 
dish presented to the officers of the screw -steamship „MetaIen KruisT 
by the Society „Het Metalen Kruis" Dec. 2, 1863, also 1 
memory of these facts green; further a silver cup bestowed 
Prince Hendrik on Vice-Admiral Lucas, on his 8otii birthday. Nei 
to it stands a splendid golden cup of honour presented to Vici 
Admiral Jan Van Gogh on his departure to the Dutch East-Indi^ 
and trusted as a loan to the Museum; this object of a 
at the well known factory of Froment Meurice at Paris in 1 
excelling by a beautiful and tasteful execution. On the other side c

the door: among other things, a sword of honour presented in 1804 
by the Government of the Batavian Republic, to the Lieutenant ot 
the Navy D. Velsberg. In a glass show-case there is a piece of 
ordnance with a very rich and beautiful ornamentation; about its 
origin nothing is known for certain; we only know that formerly 
it was in the Prince-Stadtholder Willem the Fifth's possession; it 
is not unlikely that it has been a present of a distinguished person. 

North of the central compartment with the ships'models, we see 
to the right: 10 groups in the National dress. These groups 
were made for the Dutch section of the international exhibition, held 
at Paris in 1878, and were subsequently preserved in the Dutch 
Museum. At the time the historical value of these groups was pointed 
out I ) and it was observed that, if there might be a doubt whether 
they had a right to be there, since the greater part of these dresses 
are still in use, it should not be overlooked that this will not be the 
case for any length of time. In Hinlopen, for instance, not one of 
the inhabitants is at present to be seen in the well-known dress, of 
which there is a specimen in the Museum, viz. a young housewife 
with a dry-nurse and two children. Probably, within a comparatively 
short time, we shall in vain look for specimens of articles of clothing, 
such as we find them collected here, and then it would positively 
be regretted, if the present generation had been remiss in preserving 
the remembrance of these costumes. Just as we now regret our 
ancestors' not having taken care of preserving us somewhat more 
of their picturesque dress. 

The groups are : 1 . A family from the isle of Marken, consisting of 
husband, wife and child. — 2. A damsel from the parts beyond the 
Maes (Oud-Beyerland) and a female dealer from Breda. — 3. A 
Zuidbeveland man with his betrothed on the ice. — 4. An inhabitant 
of Volendam with his mother. — 5, A Schevening fisherman and 
fish-wife. — 6. A bride and bridegroom from Nunspeet. — 7. A 
fisherman from Huizen and a fish- wife from Zandvoort. — 8, A 
lady from Friesland with an orphan-girl from the Hague, — 9. A 
Walcheren peasant, asking for a kiss of a girl as toll for crossing a 
bridge. — 10. Two Amsterdam orphan girls.

To the left we find all sorts of weapons and some colours < 
regiments, formerly in the service of the Dutch republic; the latte 
were previously preserved in the building of the National-Archives 
nearly all of them date from the iBth century. On the whole, 
collection of arms, when compared with those of other Museum^ 
is of no great importance, nor does it contain any objects of g 
age. A separate compartment has been reserved for what was obtalnec 
from the former Municipal armory; a glass show-case contains model 
of field-and fortification ordnance, with other implements ol wai 
wanted when an enemy menaced the city; these different items havQ 
been ceded as loans by the city of Amsterdam. Another separati 
compartment contains the section marine artillery, for the greate 
part derived from the model-room of the Navy office; it belongs t 
the iptli century. Further we see a collection formed with grea 
exertion, containing uniforms and arms of the Dutch army, in whicl 
nearly all the successive corps of cavalry are represented; with thi 
exception of sundry articles this collection contains whatever ii 
this line belongs to the ist half of the century. It has been ccA 
lecled and presented to the Museum in 1889 by Mr. A. Ci 
Baron SnouckaerC Van Schauburg, Major of the Hussars, Cham 
berlain and Equerry to the King. The beautifully worked models 
of pontoons etc. take their origin from Russia and have been' 
presented by General-Major C. L. Scheidler List, and formerly 
bestowed on the General's father by the Grand-duke Michel 1 
Russia. 

■The large ships' flags suspended on the walls of the Inner cou 
are trophies of war from the naval engagements of the Dutch in tl 
i/tli century, the times of Maerten Harpertz. Tromp, De Ruyier^ 
Cornelis Tromp and all the other naval heroes who were rhei 
partners. They are for the greater part English flags, but also some 
Spanish ones are among them. 

To the right: against the central compartment there is a roonS 
having formerly belonged to a small hunting-lodge at Amersfbort 
called the Hoogei'huis, demolished in 1879, and of yore built aoi 
inhabited by the famous Jacob Van Campen, the architect of thi 
Townhall (palace) at Amsterdam. In this room the ancient decora 
tions are, for the greater part, still to be seen; there is a bed-steady 



enriched with painted garlands and with three compartments in 
which fruit is represented. Under the central compartment stands 
the Spanisch motto: „EI todo es nada" (every thing is nought). 
Over the eight Jittle windows which once lighted up the room on 
either side there were as many paintings, of which some have been 
preserved. They represent „vanilies" and scenes from the history 
of Hercules, This painting is attributed to Van Campen as well as 
the building of the hunting -lodge, which appears to have been 
founded about 1630. 

Contiguous to this is the Hindelopen room, on the outside 
provided with penthouse and seats; within, the walls are ornamented 
with old tiles, whilst the gay furniture shows the peculiarities of the 
Hindelopen taste. But what, amidst these surroundings, most attracts 
attention, is the fine group of a lady from Hindelopen, looking with 
delight at her baby, carried by the nurse, whilst on her right a bigger 
infant clings to mother's dress. 

Vehicles: two sedan-chairs from the tSil' century, a pleasure- 
chariot, richly decorated, with painted panels, supposed to be from 
the hand of A. Schouman; ice-sledge, both from the iBiii century; 
carriage (berlin) used by king WUlem I; old-Dutch chaise, etc. 

Mementos of the winter-quarters of the Dutch in 
Nova-Zembla. As is well known the expedition to the North 
under Jacob Van Heemskerk and Willem Barentsz. took place be- 
tween 1596 and 1597; numbers of objects of various nature, pro- 
bably considered useless to be carried back on the home-voyage, 
were left behind in the inhospitable island, where, nearly three 
centuries later, they were found, in iS/l, by Captain E. Carelsen, 
of Hammerfest, and in 1876 by Mr. Charles Gardiner, of Goring 
(Oxfordshire) and presented by the latter to the Dutch Government. 
The objects are mentioned on the written lists placed near them 

Somewhat further down right and left, all sorts of models 
relating to shipbuilding, coast-lighting, salvage and life- 
boat institutions, etc. High on the south wall; ship's flags taken 
from pirates, etc. of the Indian Archipelago. Further some old pic- 
tures in oil colours of former factories of the Dutch in Asia, as also 
a series of painted portraits of governors of the Rotterdam chamber 
of the East-India Company.

Ascending Che south stairs ot the inner couj 
we come to a series of halls showing the dev*^

; earliest time up to the i^cU century. 1) Tfl 
first hall we enter is from the period of Gh) 
lemagne. The floor is imitated after that of tl^ 
gallery in the Cathedral church at Aix-la-Chapelle. To the rig^ 
there is a remarkable remnant from the ancient Egmont Abbejj 
il is a sculptured stone, tympanum, representing St. Peter with tu 
keys of heaven and earth; kneeled on his right and left are repni 
sented Count Diederik of Holland and his mother Petronella, wido^ 
to Floris II. Of all the greatness and pomp of this celebrated Abbej 
which, with its rare library, was destroyed in 1573, this stone is on 
of the few remnants. The altar on the south wall is an imitation < 
that in the old crypt of the St. Servatius' church at Maestricht, ■ 
the painting, as far as regards the upper part, has been borrow^ 
from the Evangeliarium of Egmont Abbey, preserved in the Royj 
Library at The Hague, from specimens of Ravenna Nola, and I 
lower part from a very old woven material (perhaps as early as tlfi 
4tli century) preserved in the treasury or muniment room of t 
St. Servatius' church.

In the centre of the hall stands a copy of the reliquary of St. Ser- 
valius. The original of gilt brass, richly ornamented with chasing, 
filigree, enamel and stones, is in the late -Romanesque style of thd 
middle or the latter half of the latli century. 

The architecture of this hall is an imitation. 
of that of Our Lady's Minsterchurch at Roer- 
mond, dating from the end of the icdi or the 
early part of the 1 3111 century. The painted' 
ornamentation is borrowed partly from this-. 
^ "' church, partly from the cathedral at Tournayj, 

the floor is made after the remains of the one to be found in the 
gallery of Our Lady's Minsterchurch, The glass in lead is after^ 
samples from the 1 srii century, cited in the „AnnaIes" of Didron. 
The window in burnt glass is a copy of part of a window from the" 
church at Chartres; it represents the temptation of Christ by Satan, 
Christ on his way to the marriage feast at Cana, and Christ turning 
water into wine. This window was presented to the Museum 
1887 by the firm of Champigneulle at Paris, who restored the famous 
window of the cathedral at Chartres. 

In the centre ot the hall the eye is drawn to a reproduction of 
the tomb of Gerard III of Gueldres and his consort Margaret of 
Brabant in Our Lady's (^Cf. picture 27) at Roermond, The two 
recumbent effigies are especially remarkable for the knowledge of 
the costume in the 1 31I' century.

No. 172 of the ground- crowned hatchets — the arms of the sculptors'

cimens still extant from the 14th century. The painting of the vaulted 
ceiling is followed after remains of painting in the Cathedral at 
Freiburg in Brisgau, and in Our Lady's chapel in the Cathedral at 
Mayence. The figures next to the windows are reproductions of 
wall-painting in the now demolished church at Sevenum, in the see 
of Roermond; they represent the Apostles S.S. Peter, Andrew, James 
the Greater and Bartholomew, besides S.S, Barbara, Catharina, 
Apollonia and Agatha, i) 

In the hall there is an altar, derived from the church at Kidrich; 
the retable is enriched with painting from the Cologne school. Before 
the altar are placed carved oaken pews from the now demolished 
Little Church of Edam, and some very beautifully sculptured Gothic 
panels, taken from the organ of the church at Naarden. We especially 
draw attention to the beautiful carving of these panels.

On the wall we see a fine Gothic pulpit with panels, in which] 
there is Gothic carving with the Burgundian cross and fire-steel, ori-]

The north extremity of the hall shows ceiling paintings inspired 1

brick, and a very defaced portion, which is used as a school, is still j 
extant. The building is a very remarkable specimen of what, in the I 
131I1 century, could be construcced, exclusively with bricks. From 1 
it we can see what miiy be created out of a plain indigenous j 
material, when it is wrought into profled brickbats, ornamented ] 
with foliage or figures, enameled or glazed, and arranged with , 
ingenuity and taste i). 

The glass fitted in lead, has been arranged after fragments from | 
the same century, cited by Didron „Histoire de la Verrerie". The J 
painting has been followed after specimens and figures of the 13th I 
century wall-painting in the nunnery at Gurk and after samples 
from churches on the Rhine, as from the church of Cunibert at I 
Cologne. Especially note-worthy are the enameled green tiles in the 1 
walls; these have been copied from fragments of tiles found in the ] 
ancient chapel itself.

EcdcBiastical "^^^ architecture of this halt carries the spec- 

Architecture, tator back to the 171I century, viz. the time 
XVII'h century. when Hendrik De Keyser and Vredeman De 
No. 165 of the ground- Vries formed a school, taking its inspirations 
'^ ' from classical architeciure. The windows on the 

wcstside are adorned with two curious old burnt glasses, one of 
which shows the arms of Alkmaar. and the other those of Hoorn; 
the latter represents the naval engagement on the Zuiderzee against 
the Spanish fleet under Bossu in 1573. On the north wall there 
are copies of the painting discovered in 1879 in the Great or St. 
Laurence' church at Rotterdam, To the right is seen the painting 
in the former chapel of the Barbers- and Surgeons' Guild there. 
When the said church was in 1572 transferred to the Reformed, 
this guild remained attached to its chapel. The altar was indeed 
broken out, but at that lime too much taste and love of art prevailed 
to put up with a bare wall. The guild determined on having on 
the spot where the altar had stood a large wall-painting, which was 
found back in [879. If the guild's patrons. Cosmos and Damianus, 
could no longer be the subject of this work of art, yet, as well the 
then prevailing religious feeling as the place where the painting was 
to appear, required its having a religious character. It was resolved, 
in elegant letters and in a rich frame, to write on the wall the 
parable of the good Samaritan, since it treats of the healing of wounds 
and the charitable care of a sufferer. The text ingeniously chosen 
by the guild is taken from St, Luke, Chapter X. The beautifully 
drawn frame evinces the style of the early part of the 171I1 century 
and calls to memory the elegant decorations of Vredeman De Vries; 
it is formed by a triumphal arch, of the Ionic order and placed on 
a broad cornice. On the head fantastic flourishes form a capping 
enriched with three vases filled with roses. A rich lambrequin and 
two corbels in the form ^of female heads adorn the lower cornice. 
The emblems o( ihc guild are to be seen in three different places: 
on either side three barber's basins are suspended on a projecting 
perch; at the bottom a comb and a pair ot scissors are fastened to 
a depending ribbon, i)

To the left a copy of the painting on one of the pillars in the 
said church, in 1573 paid for by the guild of St. Severin, or of the- 
weavers, at Rotterdam. The richly adorned cornice surrounds the 
text from the ist epistle of Paul to the Corinthians, Chap. XlIIj 
the whole is crowned by the guild's coat-of-arms, and a shuttle be- 
tween two flowers of fiax. Like the painting just now mentioned it- 
was discovered in iSjp. 

One of the windows on the east side shows a curious, ancient 
burnt glass, representing the Stadtholder Prince Maurice, kneeling. 
He raises his eyes to the word „Jehova," which is indicated 
Hebrew characters. At the top stands the Prince's escutcheon, sur- 
rounded by the Order of the Garter. This glass, taken from the 
convent of St. Agatha, appears at the time to have been presented 
to it by the Prince. The Principals of this convent presented it in 
their turn to the State, in behalf of the Museum. The reading 
desk ought properly not to stand here; it originates from the 
Society „Fe]ix Mentis" and consequently is no pulpit; it dates 
from 177-. 

On the wall: some ancient escutcheons taken from the church i.^^^ 
Edam, a model in terra coita of the tomb of Admiral Maertea 
Harpertsz. Tromp, at Delft, etc. And herewith our walk through

the north wall there is a Gothic oaken press, from one of the 
chapters at Utrecht; besides there are tapistry hangings from the 
171I' century, representing rural scenes in the manner of David 
Teniers. On the south side of the hall may be seen a cast of the 
beautiful and richly ornamented fire-place from the ancient 'Mar- 
kiezenhof (marquis court) at Bergen-op-2oom, from the latter half 
of the i5ti' century. The sculpture represents: among other things,

and died in 1494, as is attested by an old rhyme:

The show-cases in this hall contain all sorts af earthen bottles and

bottles of Jhr. Dr. J. P. Six and of the Royal Antiquarian Society 
are arranged here in separate show-cases. 

Senate-house hall. The ceiling of this hall, as well as the chimney, 
XVth century. is an imitation of those in the Senate-house at 

Nos. 161 and 162 of Zwolle, which was built by the architect Master 
the ground-plan. Berent in 1447, The two painted blazons before 
the fire-place are imitated after those adorning a mantle piece at the 
Castle of Loevesteyn; one of them is the coat-of-arms of Philip the 
Fair, Archduke of Austria, Duke of Burgundy, Count of Holland, 
etc., afterwards King of Spain; above the escutcheon may be read 
his defying device: quy vouldra; the other one is that of Albert, 
Duke of Saxony and Stadtholder General of the Netherlands, in 
which dignity he obtained Loevesteyn as a security, which, however, 
; afterwards was cancelled and instead of which he got the hereditary 
Stadtholdership of Friesland as far as the Lauwers as a feof; the 
little escutcheons over them are those of Austria and Spain. This 
painting dates probably between 1491 and 1495. 2) The chiselled 
escutcheons with a silver cross represent the coat-of-arms of Zwolle.

the Burgundian period and others from the ist halfof the i6tli cen- 
tury. In the middle of the hall: show-cases with fine wrought iron, 
as: keys, locks, knockers, bands, etc.; articles of tin, or brass, and 
caskets, of which some have a leather covering and metal bands, 
and others are ornamented with inlaid work. Before leaving this hall 
particular attention is required for the touch-stone top of a table 
artistically inlaid with pearl-mother by Dirck Van Ryswyck, an 
Amsterdam artist who flourished in the middle of the ijrh century 
and whose magnificent works have been sung by Joost Van den Vondel.

XVII"' century. The doorposts have nice carpenter's work en- 
No. 15B ofiiie gripimd- riched with wood- carvings from the latter half 
P'""' of the i7tii century; the western doorpost is 

from the house called „Keulen" (^Cologne) on the Main market at 
Rotterdam, where in the early part of that century the renowned 
printing-office of Van Waesberghe was established. In the kitchen 
we see a winding staircase with a very nicely carved baluster. Over 
the door there is a carved panel, probably originally a sign-board, 
representing an ancient post-chaise. Further a fire-place from the 
171I1 century with an iron crook (pot-hook with cramp), 

Pavillion hall. By an iron gate, a remarkable product Ot 

No. i57of chegrciiiiid- modern forge-work, we now enter the eastern 
P'""- Pavillion-hali, containing among other things 

all sorts of gold and silver objects of very costly nature. 

On the wall are suspended the renowned Middelburg tapestry 
hangings made by Jan De Maecht, dating from the latter part of 
the [(5cli century; one represents the damage done by the Zeelanders 
to the fortifications of the Spaniards at the siege of Zieriksee in 
i','6, the subject of the other is the attack of the Zeelanders on the

Spanish fleet under Sancho D'Avila, between Beveland and Wal- 
cheren in 1573. The border of these carpets is conspicuous for the 
ingeniousness and elegance of the drawing. 

In the then following turning show-case are exhibited all sorts ot 
small objects in silver, as spoons, trinkets, etc, 

The glass-ware is contained in five show-cases. 

Placed together are; 1". cut and cast drinking glasses; among the 
former there is a glass of great age ~ perhaps as early as the isiii 
century — the so-called „Hcdwig glass", on which shapes of 
animals are cut in relievo. These shapes seem to point al a Byzantine 
origin; similar glasses are only found in the collections at Breslau 
and at Nurenberg, 

2", German cilindric beakers of green glass, richly ornamented 
with painted arms, the greater part of them from the i6tli and the 
early part of the i/tli century, as also Dutch rummers of the i/tln 
century. 

3". Venetian glass and what, in former centuries, has been pro- 
duced, under that name, in Holland. 

4". Glasses with etched and dotted portraits and ornaments; some 
of these, such as that by A. Schouman, are exceedingly line. In the 
north-east corner of the hall there is a turning case with objects 
in gold and silver, a few of which are of Indian origin. 

The three cases following contain the most remarkable beakers 
and bumpers, etc., of silver, gilt silver, and gold. Among 
these the most noteworthy are; three beautifully wrought chalices 
of the 13111, i^tli and 15111 centuries; the two former from the oid 
Minster church at Utrecht. If these objects have chiefly an artistic 
value, others are important as historical relics, such as the silver 
drinking cup from Dirk Schey, on which is engraved his adventure 
on December 29 and 30, \6i(i. This plain boatman gained renown 
by his expedition from Cologne, in a boat specially arranged by 
him for the occasion. Amidst frequent dangers and along hostile 
towns, he succeeded in carrying down the Rhine and safely taking 
to Holland, besides a number of valuable things, a very considerable 
sum of money destined for the Spanish garrisons of the neighbouring- 
towns. For this extraordinary teat the Stadtholdcr Frederick Henry 
presented him and his companions with the booty taken, and besides

made him, as the planner of the expedition, a ship's captain to the 
Admiralty of Amsterdam. Afterwards he assisted in the taking of 
Schenkenschans and died at an advanced age. His great-grandson 
was Vice-Admiral Gilles Schey. — Beaker of the chapter of St. Mary 
at Utrecht, of 1686. — Reliquary of gill brass, in the form of a 
human head, 141!! century, — Embossed drinking vessel with the 
portrait of Willem Courten, in prison; the inscription is to the 
following purport: On March 2, 1567 the Duke of Alva intended 
to take away Ghuilliame Courteti's life, but God has given victory 
by his spouse Marghuerita, March 29, 1567 1). — Tankard and 
salver from the town of Flushing, of about 1608. — Beaker of 
Voorne with lid and enameled ornamentation. — Embossed silver 
gorget of St. George's guild at Stryp, 17th century. — Drinking 
horn of the Mainskippers' guild at Stavoren of 1538. — Gold cup 
presented to H. Swaerdecroon in 1725. — Gold cup presented to 
captain Cornelis Schryver in 1724, 

In a separate closet: an embossed silver image representing Atlas 
bearing the globe. On the pedestal there is an embossed plate with 
Mercury and the shepherd Argus. This exquisite piece was wrought 
by the celebrated Paulus Van Vianen in 1610 and was bequeathed 
to the Museum by Mrs. Tirion ti^e Scheltes, in 1855. 

The centra! show-case contains the silver objects ceded by the 
city of Amsterdam as a loan. Among them are conspicuous the 
drinking-horns and beakers of the Cross-bow shooting- house and of 
the old guilds of the Arquebusiers and of St. Sebastian; the drinking- 
horn with St. George on horseback is the same which figures on 
B. Van der Heist's celebrated picture „Civic-guard banquet." Further 
are note-worthy nicely wrought chains of the Arquebusiers' guild, 
badges, etc. 

In the third show-case, besides a number of Silver objects of art 
of different nature, our attention is especially called to five high 
reliefs in silver by Mathias Melin, an almost unknown Dutch artist 
from the first quarter of the i/cli century; they represent episodes 
from the life of the Italian general Johannis Baptista Spinola. 

The turning show-case in the north-west corner of the hall contains 



Dutch Museum, Old- Dutch room. 

a beautiful collection of Cloisonne, Enamel and Miniatures, 
on metal, ivory, etc., from the i5tli, i6th, 17th and iStli centuries. 

In the other two show-cases are exhibited electro-typic repro- 
ductions, manufactured by the firm of Elkington & Co., after 
elsewhere extant beakers, tankards, chargers, etc. in precious metal, 
excelling by beauty of outline and artistic embossing. 

Hall. This apartment, representing an old-Dutch bed- 

No. 150 of the ground- room of the midrfle of the 17th century, forms 
plan. an exceedingly pictureisque whole, especially the 

old-fashioned fire-place with the surrounding objects. (Cf. plate No. 29). 
In the show-case there are some objects of art in terra- cotta from 
different periods; in a separate glass case there is a full length statuette 
of Bilderdyk by J. Th. Stracke. 

Hall. Following the dotted line of the plan we here 

No. 156 of the ground- see cases with nicely inlaid ornamentation and 

P^a»' the oaken lining of a room from the i7tli cen- 

.tury, burnt glasses with coats-of-arms and scenes in tiles, one of 

which represents the Delf-ware trade.

No. 155 of the ground- year 1626 and are from a house at Dordrecht. 
• plan. The ceiling painted in compartments, from the 

latter half of the 17th century, representing Morning and Evening, 
formerly adorned the bedroom of Mary, eldest daughter to king 
James II of England and consort to Willem III, Prince of Orange, 
afterwards king of England; it was taken from the former residence 
of the Stadtholders on the 'Binnenhof at The Hague. The gold- 
leather hangings are from the same time. (Gf. picture No. 30).

P'i"i- the demolished house at The Hague, formerly 

belonging to Constantyn Huygens, consecutively Secretary to three 
Princes of Orange, Frederik Hendrik, Willem II and Willem III; the 
house has originally been built by Jacob Van Campen. The blue 
silk material in the compartments of the timberwork deserves 
be noticed. The ceiling, painted by Gerard De Lairesse (i64< 
1711), represents Apollo and Aurora, and was presented by 
W. F. Piek. 

On the wall we see a weather-glass with daint)- carving, in wl 
the arms of the Republic and of the 7 Dutch provinces have 
introduced, and which was manufactured by Langkamp in 1709, 
Among the furniture there is a black wooden closet, inside enriched 
with painted panels, representing Adam and Eve in Paradise.

historical relics. of the 17111 century, and was taken from the 

iNo- isidfthe grniiiid' Stadlholder's palace at Leeuwarden; the gold- 
j I'''"'- leather hangings are from the \%i\\ century. 

I Among the historical relics the following deserve attention: the 

[ clothes of the Princes Ernest Casimir, Henry Casimir and Willem 

Frederik, as also two pistols having belonged to the latter, exhi- 
bited in a case in the wall, further the violet dressing-gown stitched 
with silver flowers, used by Willem 111, Prince of Orange and King 
I of England (b. 1650, t '7°-); ^'ith it there is the under- waistcoat

jjjQj_ The painted ceiling is from the latter pari of 

No. 151 of tlie ground- the i/tli century, and represents a prince, con- 
plan- ducted by Mars to Jupiter. The mantlepiece, 
taken from a house at Amsterdam, is a present of Mr. A. B. Geels. 
The . gold- leather hangings date from the 181I1 century. In this hall 
there are four chairs of state with the arms of the Stadtholder Prince 
Willem V. and on the wall there is a carved wooden gun-rack, 
from the Governor-General of the Dutch Indies, Swaerdecroon. The

Dutch Museum, Mediaei'al furniture. 

Hall. Iri this hall there is a carved gun-rack of 

No. 146 of the ground- Asiatic origin, with the arms of the family Tromp, 
pl^"- originating from the family Van Beresteyn, and 

primitively having belonged to Maerten Harpertsz. Tromp i). The 
weapons are in part of European and in part of Asiatic make. 
The show-case contains a number of images and other objects of 
bronze, for the greater part from the 17th and the i8th century, 
but among which some of mediaeval origin, as also some fine medal- 
lions in lead from the 1 7th century. 

Hall. The Gothic lining of oak timberwork and the 

No. 147 of the ground- cupboards on the wall are from the 15th century; 
plan* on the carved wooden covering (modern repro- 

duction after samples from that time) there are ten various bronze 
images, said to represent Counts and Countesses of Holland; they 
date from the 15th century and belong to the city of Amsterdam, 
being in its possession since 1690* It does not appear to us an 
u nlikely guess that these master-pieces of the art of founding metal 
ta ke their origin from a mediaeval tomb of a prince or princess of 
the 15th century, formerly perhaps having figured in the ruined 
A bbey of Egmont. As is proved by some monuments of that time 
still extant elsewhere, figures of a similar dimension are seen placed 
in niches on the side panels of such tombs. 

The chimney hewn in stone is from the same time; it is from a 
house in the province of Utrecht, probably from the castle of Loener- 
sloot, and was presented by Mr. S. Muller Fzn. LL.D. — Iron plate 
of a hearth from the early part of the i6th century. — Among the

evidently dates frcm tie Irttcr jjirt of the i7<h century, and therefore has been 
added a long time after the great commander's death, perhaps by his grandson and 
namesake Mr. Maerten Haryertsz. Tromp, b. at Delft, April 10, 1659; d. March 5, 
1708, Common Councillor at Delft C^^pO^ Alderman (1695 — 1700), Treasurer of 
the main Fishery, and Eep uiy to the States council (1701^. He had no issue of his 
marriage with Catharine Beyer; his sister Dina Cornelia Tromp was married to 
Thomas Christiaensz. Van Beresteyn and by that the escutchecn may have come 
in the possession of the family Van Beresteyn. (Cf. Notes and information con- 
cerning the family Van der Tromp, or Tromp in „Rotterdamsche Historiebladen.")
